Ethical Amulets

with Laurel Swetnam

Saturday , Jun 15, 2013, 9:30am – 4:00pm

Elephants and coral reefs rejoice!  Faux ivory and coral made of polymer clay let us quench our thirst for those exotic elements.   With the addition of a little texture, paint, and imagination, polymer can recreate the color and grain of ivory  and coral.  In this class, we will make ivory and coral imitatives,  which will form the basis for a pendant and additional beads.  We’ll experiment with using molds to create interesting designs and play with a range of  surface treatments, including texturing  and using paints.  For more photos of faux coral and ivory, look at Sanding and buffing are an important element in this technique, so we’ll leave time for finishing our pieces.  Class hours are 9:30-4:00.  All materials are included.
